anyway ;) : do you know the McQueenie Miniature kits? I just love them! They make and sell high quality kits (and finished products) of period furniture and I once ordered their mannequin kit at a Dutch webshop, since I really thought the Oldtique Store to be should have one. Later in some other webshop I found another mannequin of them, similar but with a different bust and I thought: why not have twó mannequins for my Oldtique Store? So I got that one too. The kit is supereasy, just glue the thing together and sand to get rounded edges on the feet. It would have been a 5 minute job, mostly because of the sanding.
but, I can't help myself always thinking of something that I want to add or change and these mannequins (lovely and perfect as they are on their own) were no exception.
I changed the look of the the kitparts of the second one a bit so they wouldn't be complétely identical, besides the different finishing of the fabric. The text of the light one is the name of the French fashionhouse Lanvin, the eldest in the world. Thought that'd be a nice touch. On the back I decided to put 'la couture de Jeanne', Jeanne being Lanvin's founder.
|it makes more sense photographing it with the text to the light, but then you can hardly see it|
|I forgot to make a picture of the tiny nappy pin I used to attach the pricetag. It's a lasercut one from the Dollhouse Mall and actually goes through the fabric of the mannequin|
